Lebanon's The Nook Cafe & Sweetery Closing June 25 2014 We heard the sad news this week.  Sabrina is closing The Nook Cafe in historic downtown Lebanon with the last day of operation June 25th.  Over the last two years The Nook (originally 180 Cafe) has been one of our favorite places to stop by and get lunch to go, and some sweets for desert.  Most Saturdays (unless showing homes) we were able to enjoy the food from The Nook.  The food was tasty, portions ample, prices reasonable, service friendly and we were supporting a local small business. A win-win for sure. However, while The Nook Cafe downtown is closing, Sabrina will still be operating The Nook Express on Columbus Ave with specialty coffees, wraps, sandwiches and sweets.  Additionally she'll still be available for catering and ...

What's My Lebanon Ohio Home Worth? The Lebanon Ohio market isn't what it was a few years ago when it was an extreme struggle to sell a home.  Prices have risen, demand has increased, your opportunity to sell your Lebanon home is better than it has been in years.   So obviously if you're considering selling your Mason Ohio home there are typically two questions you want to know the answer to: 1)  How much is my Lebanon home worth? 2)  How quickly will it sell? Now the 2nd question has a few variables (how aggressively do you want to price, what's the condition of your home, location of your home, etc.), but in general for Lebanon Ohio if you do what you should, you'll most likely be under contract within 90 days (unless you're in the luxury segment, then be prepared for a slower sales pr...

31st Annual Lebanon Quilt & Fabric Arts Show March 7-9 2014 One of my childhood memories is sleeping under patchwork quilts Grandma handcrafted.   We had them for years, and I can remember watching her sew little pieces of fabric together making colorful patterns.  Some of those quilts are still in use by my parents! And if you think the quilt making art form has quietly gone away, you'd be mistaken.  If anything, the craftspeople who makes these quilts have taken it to an entirely new level, more intricate, more art you'd rather hang on the wall than use to stay warm!  You'll find plenty of evidence of the quilt making craft at the 31st Annual Lebanon Quilt & Fabric Arts Show hosted by the Warren County Historical Society!Where:  Warren County History Center in Downtown Lebanon (105 So...
